Big Cycle Part 10: Turkey #2, a set on Flickr.
We have been holed up in a small hostel near the Black Sea in Georgia for Christmas, with the huge mass of Turkey finally behind us.
It took us 50 days to cross the country by bicycle. We had visitors from home in Istanbul, a broken rear wheel to replace, a spate of punctures before we got our shiny new marathon tyres, loads of kind and generous hosts, and the first days of winter with snow piled high at the road side and our water bottles freezing as we pedalled.
Here are a selection of photographs from the latter half of our time in Turkey. They are some of my favourites so far.
